Incarnational living is a buzz phrase right now, whether it is in the literature of the emerging church or in the call of inner-city church planters to move into areas of deprivation. But what does it mean? Is it living locally rather than commuting to church? Is it participating in local community? Or is it concentrating on relationships rather than programmes?

This day will consider these ideas and translate them into action to change what we do and the way we live.

Andrew Grinnell will lead us in a day where we will discuss the following questions:

What do we mean by Incarnational Living?
Is it a helpful term or just buzz words?
Does it inspire us to follow Christ in the 21st Century context?
How can Incarnational Living be sustainable?
